Thursday’s Theme: Get Caught Reading

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

May is Get Caught Reading Month, which is an opportunity to promote reading at any and every age. Since we specialize in home decor, we’re getting in on the fun by featuring six reading nooks in which we wouldn’t mind getting caught reading.

Decorating with Color: Spring Greens

Thursday, May 17th, 2018

With all the lush trees, flowers and plant life surrounding us during this time of year, today we’re featuring the color that encapsulates the charm of spring: green. Below we’ve shared a few ways to use the different shades of green in your home.

Cabinets

In the kitchen or in the bathroom, green is a great complement to just about every design style: farmhouse, modern, mid-century and more. Gold, muted yellow, wood materials all work with green, so you are sure to find accents and additional decor to coordinate with whatever shade of green you select.

Walls

Paint is a great way to freshen up any living space, so if you’re ready to take the plunge, paint an entire room in your favorite green hue. For added texture, you could also try green beadboard or shiplap, or find a green patterned wall paper to give your home a spring infusion.

Accents

Of course, sprinkling green around your home can also bring a cheerful look to each room. Some ideas include painting stairs, incorporating a green furniture piece or painting your doors and windows the same shade of green. Green home accents like pillows, curtains, collectibles and more will also make a spring-y impression.
